Achievement for Blues on the Internet

It may have taken Delbert McClinton 30 years to catch on with mainstream audiences as he fused a unique hybrid style of blues, funk, and country, but he has clearly arrived and as he took home the coveted Grammy Award for his 2001 release of Nothing Personal.
If you’ve seen Delbert in concert, than you know just how dynamic of a performer he is. With his tight horn section and Little Walter-esque harp playing, he is truly the master of the stage with an intense and commanding sound. He follows up his critically acclaimed Room To Breath disc with a kickin’ live disc which captures the high energy of McClintons’ show. Recorded in Bergen Norway, the two disc set Delbert McClinton LIVE is his first live album in fourteen years and his first double live collection. It contains favorites from Nothing Personal including "When Rita Leaves" and "Livin' It Down" and from the Grammy nominated Room To Breathe such as "Smooth Talk" and "Don't Want To Love You." Other Delbert standards featured are "Giving It Up For Your Love", “Back To Louisiana” and the Otis Redding ballad, "I've Got Dreams To Remember."
